          The sizes are as described. Unusual color/pattern and will more than likely be favored by someone with a different taste, like this textured stone finish for example. I am impressed with the way it has been constructed using poly-resin, rather than the usual plastic and the way the screw holes match up perfectly in this wall switch plate with the one gang switch itself. I changed the old plastic plate for this one in the bathroom. The wife loves it and who am I to disagree. When she asked me if I loved it too. My answer? Yes dear.

          I had no problem whatsoever in slotting these boards together. Yes okay, they will slide out without the molding attached unless you are screwing then down, but not just with walking on them. When I was kneeling down on them having fitted about a dozen and about to slot in another board, I slid my legs down across the fitted boards and of course the last one I had just put in slipped out and it took all of 30 seconds to make sure that all were again secured enough until the molding was secured using finish nails.

Referring to the molding briefly, I used a few lengths of natural Hickory 5/8 in. Thick x 3/4 in. Wide x 94 in. Length Laminate Quarter Round Molding obtained from my Home depot store for lass that 10 bucks each length which fitted perfectly to this flooring as well as blending in beautifully.
          I did not use any laminate floor sealer as was advised by the rep at Home depot nor any kind of top surface sealant
          Each of the 9 boards in each case was in pristine condition showing no flaws in the manufacturing or the shipping.
          Very easy to snap together I used this laminate in my teenage sons bedroom floor, 12 X 12 which took half a day. Just to make sure that all drinks are banned from his room… as these boards are allergic to being wet ,well yeah like that’ll work.

          Used some of these to tidy up cables that hang from the PC with some others to secure my solar light wires. The only real difference from these to some other ties that have metal at the joint, is that rust will not be a problem. The nylon ties are as tough as specified as it took quite a bit of some deliberate force to snap them but the 18LB strength is not of a concern with these 4-inch ones as I would only use them for example to secure wires and small cables. Easy as expected to thread through and secure and to snip off.

          This color-shot formula has a propellant derived from sugar cane instead of petroleum and that has to be good for our environment…right!
          I chose three of varieties that it states, i.e. metal, plastic and wood. As expected, the pine wood took a few coats before it started to show a consistent color on its’ surface after allowing each coat to dry its allotted 10 minutes of drying exposure before giving another coat. The other two surfaces, I ran the spray over twice without a pause to get good consistency and left them outside in a warm breeze for about 15 minutes. The results on all three were very good with the opaque result I wanted. No drips either from the can while spraying the acrylic.

          Having decided to install this shelving in my laundry room, the first project was to cut the shelves to my desired length of just over 6 feet (74 “to be exact) and for two shelves each on opposite walls. To cut them I used a hand held very fine-toothed circular power saw and cutting each one between the slats and then after covering a couple of feet of the uncut shelving, I gave the edge a spray of expresso color to try and match the finish of the rest of the wood (not quite the same but close enough)
          Very impressed with wood after cutting all four boards as there was no sign whatsoever of any imperfections. The brackets are something you have to see to be convinced just how well made they

          Having decided to install this shelving in my laundry room, the first project was to cut the shelves to my desired length of just over 6 feet (74 “to be exact) and for two shelves each on opposite walls.

          Very impressed with wood after cutting all four boards as there was no sign whatsoever of any imperfections. The brackets are something you have to see to be convinced just how well made they are. Reinforced with a layer of steel, I can only imagine the immense strength that these have for holding heavy items. The 2” size 12 screws are more than adequate and although the enclosed instructions state to just drive them into the wall after locating the wall studs, I am assuming they mean after you have drilled the holes and fitted suitable anchors if no studs are available as is in my laundry room as the old rough stone wall has been sealed and plastered over (all screws are supplied but no anchors)
          Took me almost 4 hours to complete, but that was mostly due to the drill missing the rock and going through the mortar on a few occasions and so stopped and used a tube of concrete filler before continuing.
          Very pleased with both the result and the quality.
          These are returnable within the 90 day period

          Okay....I figured it would require a junction box that was recessed into the ceiling in order for it to be hard wired ,but how does the light connect to the junction box. For example, does the light come apart so the base of it can be fixed to the junction box?

Great for showering yourself or your loved ones and pets, as well as for keeping your shower and tub clean.

          Answer: 
          Every tub that has a shower attached has a valve already in situ`(which is hidden behind the wall behind the faucet. On many tub faucets it has a pull up `pin`, which, when pulled up switches from filling a bath tub to a shower mode and visa versa. If you already have that, then all you require is the shower kit.
